Even if you’ve completed the Let’s Go games by now, you can still keep with the Pokémon cheer all through the pre-festive season thanks to Twitch.

If you weren’t aware, Twitch started streaming every single episode of the Pokémon anime back in the summer, and it’s starting again this Thanksgiving.

Twitch will be showing every episode from the first five seasons of the anime, and it’s set to kick off at 1pm ET, 22nd November 2018.

The episodes will then run straight through to 3rd December, and will start back up again on Christmas Eve for some holiday specials.

As for the Pokémon Let’s Go games, it seems they’ve split opinions on whether they’re actually good or not.

Some fans are loving the return of what’s essentially a vamped-up Pokémon Yellow, but others lament the traditional capturing mechanics, which have been replaced with something akin to the capturing in Niantic’s mobile game, Pokemon GO!.
